The ferry at Neak Loung, crossing the river to get to my site

The garment factory down the block from my house. Hundreds and hundreds of young women work there.

My site. The road to the left leads to Kampong Cham. The dirt rad to the right leads to my school 

A recycling truck

They pick up recycling and bring it to Vietnam. There is no recycling system in Cambodia
